The Houston Chronicle’s Brawl Sports blog is reporting that both Randy Couture AND Brock Lesnar are struggling with injuries:
The main event between Randy Couture and Brock Lesnar at UFC 91 may be in jeopardy. According to 3 different sources that are either involved with the Lesnar or Couture camp, both fighters are currently battling serious injuries. Lesnar sustained a hamstring injury, that he’s trying to cover up and work through, and Couture is having major shoulder problems.
It’s important to note that these injury allegations are new and have nothing to do with the Brock Lesnar injury prank played on Kim Couture last week (I know, how the fuck did we miss covering that??? My apologies for falling asleep at the switch).
Our pal Steve at MMA Convert thinks that both fighters will show up to fight if they have to be dragged into the ring and propped up ‘Weekend at Bernie’s’ style. The UFC better hope things go through as planned – I have no idea what kind of replacement fight they could pull out of their ass to justify the insane ticket prices they’ve levied on Las Vegas for UFC 91.
